Liberal Dems Fuming Over Dropped Measures in Spending Bill

Joe Biden was burning the midnight oil trying to cut a deal with moderates in his party on his big spending bill.

Several elements that were key to progressives have now been reportedly cut from the “framework” of the bill so Biden could get something passed before the big summit in Europe.

While moderates now seem as though they are all on board and the legislation is likely to get through the Senate, it faces an uphill battle in the House.

Broken Promises, Broken Hopes

Even with the bill being trimmed, there is still far too much fat spending for this bill to be considered an infrastructure bill.

As part of the trimming of the fat, some of the most significant measures removed were extended paid family and medical leave.

Reports also broke that much of the penalizing of the fossil fuel industry was tossed from the bill.

Senator Sanders (I-VT), who has been an advocate of expanding Medicare as well as family and medical paid leave, was not happy.

As the cuts were being made public, Sanders stated, “The problem is with members here who, although they are very few in number and are a significant minority, think that they have a right to determine what the rest of the Congress should be doing.”

Very ironic coming from the man that has held up more than his fair share of votes over issues that apparently only mattered to him and nobody else.

I would still suspect Sanders will support the bill in the Senate, however.

The real problem here is going to be the House, as AOC and other members of her Squad are already hinting they may boycott the vote by casting a “present” instead of a “yes” vote.

If that happens, this legislation fails.

Now, they may do what they did last time with just enough voting “present” to make a point while the legislation still had enough votes to pass, but that remains to be seen.

Pelosi has already stated the bill will more than likely be put on the floor today for a vote, so we will not have to wait too long for that.

Even so, do not start high-fiving each other just yet, as some words from Senator Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) offer just a hint of deceit in what is going on here.

The plan by Democrats is to put a piece of legislation on the floor for a vote that has only framework, no actual text.

So, if the bill passes, regardless of what they are telling us now, they will surely put provisions in there that do not belong and categorize it in a way that makes it a part of something else.

To that point, Gillibrand stated, “Until the bill is printed, I will continue working to include paid leave in the Build Back Better plan.”

These people are snakes, so you better believe they will continue to push this and somehow, someway, regardless of what they are telling us now, these provisions will still probably find their way into this legislation.

Just watch the uber-progressives in this party because if they vote “yes” with a smirk on their face, you know something nefarious is afoot.

  1. Do they ever think about us citizens? Seniors who depend on Medicare, Social Security check each month? Those who have special illnesses and have their doctors and then take it away? Small businesses that are trying to survive what is happening along with their employees? Even citizens loosing their jobs so far this year? Parents that have no choice except public school and want a choice?

  2. It is impossible to trust any of those cowardly clowns negotiating to rob us and generations to come!
    They produce nothing, yet dispose of our money as if throwing largesse at a Mardi Gras
    parade.
    Term limits are the answer to our current bunch; Cruz, Cotton and those like them could run again after a hiatus.

  3. How can you vote on something blank? Seems to be very corrupt. This is horrible news. We are already suffering high-cost living and now we’re facing a real collapse of job creation. Why would the government promote welfare? It’s because they are going to run businesses out of America. Promoting immigration so Americans will have to fight even harder for a job. The waste that is in this bill is disgraceful. Giving millions to protesters for green agenda to disrupt citizens’ daily routine. I know they have been introducing some horrible things into the public schools to push for their charter agenda. Especially Nancy 200 million park project. They buy the media in this bill. So corrupt, that it should be a crime.

    1. In 20 years there will be no jobs for American citizens OR illegal immigrants, automation will be the “thing”. This is why we are seeing a virus and killer vaccinations, to reduce the population, and the illegal immigrants will become coyote food as soon as no longer needed. The elite will live in their utopia with no little people to bother them……

  4. If We Would Have Done Half The Things They Have Done We Would Be Behind Bars.If the DOJ would do his job they would be Too, but 00000H hes one of them he ignores Fauci And Hunter And Of Course ” Lets Go Biden “

    1. I fear for the congressonal democrats that here is a vigalante out there with nothing to lose….

  5. America is “legislated” to damn much……. especially in the pork department of the democrat meat market where they try to sell prime rib, but only produce pork, and they are the only ones feeding on this pork at taxpayers expense.

  6. Impeach Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, Nadler, Schiff and several others that are hell bent on destroying America.

  7. They would even save a lot more if they cut loose all of those Biotches in the squad and just go ahead and get rid of them.

  8. Gee sooo sorry that the liberals are not happy, well not really, there is still to much garbage in the bill and how is the government going to pay for it, my guess raising taxes this is a very sick joke being forced non the American people
